    Holy crap. They have Groves rated a late 2nd round pick and Cason a mid 3rd round pick?? If the draft really falls that way the Pats would get their BPA at #7, Groves in round 2, and Cason in round 3.... WOW. I just can't believe that's gonna happen!

    Here's one for you: they have Jonathan Goff as late 6th. Well.

    The problem here is that this is a snapshot of league consensus (more or less as I doubt Ireland or Pioli, for example, are talking to the press much about their player rankings). The league, especially the talkers, by and large doesn't draft well. A few, 10 at the very most, do draft well on a regular basis.

    Also, we know that the Pats draft board is always very different that the typical team's board, so this poll, doesn't really tell us much. Where would Logan Mankins have been on this list in 2005?

    Actually, Mankins was a solid 2nd-round prospect in most rankings.

    There's no question that the Pats' board will look very different, and in general that 3-4 prospects are often undervalued in these rankings. Still though, I haven't seen any other ranking that puts the likes of Jameel McClain above Goff at ILB. Mighty interesting.

    Just looking @ the first two rounds-
    Eddie Royal
    Oniel Cousins
    Jeremy Thompson
    Jason Jones
    Thomas DeCloud
    Have made some huge jumps.

    FWIW the "huddlereport"'s self-ranking is a sham. They wait until midnight before the draft, after Gosselin, PFW and Scot Wright release rankings, and then put out their own lists ripping the more reputable sites off. It's a pretty clever but totally disingenuous method of inflating your own score.

    I subscribed to it a while ago but was surprised how little they had leading up to the draft so I don't any more. I'm still a PFW man myself for the draft.

    According to last year's chart, only Meriweather was a good pick for us.

    Certainly turned out to be the case too.

    They will come out with a revised one closer to the draft. If I catch it or someone else does, lets post it here and compare.

    I wish we could post The Sporting News board. Even if you don't agree with it, I love their format.
